Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2009
Black with tiny tan head. Very faint malt & hop aroma. Clean, dry, with little taste. It’s an easy drinking beer with no outstanding character.

McWorta (1286) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 1, 2009
Light toffee/chocolate/coffee and oyster taste. Yeast smells like the soil on a cliff at the north sea.Chocolate coloured head. Black in colour with hints of roasted coffee, clear liquid. A rich flavour, light sweet bitter a bit prickling on the tongueand slightly oily on the lips. Full body lightly oily texture and a bit fizzy, dry long finish! A good beer to go with seafood obviously... probably sea chowder to start off with.

Django (16) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2009
Bouteille brune, 500ml achetée à la LCBO (Rideau/King Edwards). Au nez, c’est discret. Très légère torréfaction/chocolat. Notes bien senties de minéraux. Signature de souffre des ales classiques de Burton-on-Trent. Le mince col de mousse disparaît rapidement. Liquide noir opaque. En bouche, c’est pratiquement idem au nez. Stout très douce et plutôt mince en bouche. Manque de corps pour se démarquer. Il n’y a pas de haute voltige ici. Bière quand même agréable lorsque consommée avec des huîtres tel que mentionné sur l’étiquette.

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Poured into PLASTIC cup (dear god) at 28 Erbe in Genoa, Italy. Nice color and aroma but nothing of the hearty stouts I know back home. Flat and bland, no character.

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2009
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours dark with a surprisingly light coloured head. The lable says "dark.rich.smooth". The first and last I agree with, but rich? I thought it was a bit thin for a stout, but tasty all the same. A good stout to have with your meal rather than after.

Tessic (1019) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2009
This stout poured a deep black colour with a nice brown coloured, rocky head. To the nose there are scents of caramel, molassass, roasted malt and cocoa. First taste was smooth and burnt flavoured but slightly watery than other stouts that I’ve had. Flavours of roasted malt most prodominent. Finish is raosty and watery all in one. Little cocoa lingering, but not too much to this one.

terrybail (704) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2009
500ml bottle from the LCBO The aroma is earthy and malty Pours a rich dark ruby brown with a good sized tan head and nice sticky lacing The taste is thin and watery a touch of coffee and chocolate really not a very good stout but ok

Boutip (5581) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2009
Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a medium size brown color head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light black chocolates is the main feature. Taste is also dominated by some light black chocolate with some notes of roasted malt and light dry finish. Body is too thin for the style with some average carbonation. Good but lacking some character and ends up being average for an oyster stout.
